I have an old house in the mountains using baseboard heaters that are individually controlled with knobs. So i want to create a setup where that knob can be turned via a servo. I want to do this through wifi and while i'm not at home. From the research i've done it looks like i can use an EPS8266 module with an UNO R3 to get it connected wirelessly and can somehow use the app Blynk. I've seen a couple projects (such as the one below) that have a similar concept so I think I can do the wiring.
My question is, am i doing this in the right way? Is there a better, easier, or more streamlined way of doing this?
I have never touched an arduino or any other controller before so this is all new to me.
Thank you for your help all!
